WHAT! It has been 12 days since I wrote a blog?
Even though there isn’t much we can do because of the COVID-19, I feel like Eric and I have been keeping busy. He has been finishing up our front porch and mulching outside. We have been trying to clean up and make sure the Baby Room is ready! Our hospital bag is finally packed and finished. The baby car seat is in my car and ready to go. Now it’s waiting time…
Can you believe I will be 38 weeks pregnant tomorrow? And for all my followers, I am only 2CM dilated. However, I have been dilated the past two weeks. So we will see what Thursday brings at my next doctor’s appointment.
Other big news before I tell you all about my books…
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY HUSBAND ERIC!!!!
He is such a good man and does everything for me and the baby! I hope he has the best birthday yet! (I made him a home made cake and I know he is going to LOVE it)
I have been non-stop reading lately. I finished up three books this week and just started reading one that I can’t wait to pick back up again.
I finished Landon & Shay by Brittainy Cherry Part 1 and Part 2
5 out of 5 stars for both books.
The reason why I picked 5 out of 5 stars is because both books kept me connected. It kept me wanting more and I needed to know Landon and Shay’s story from beginning to end. I needed to know if he would go back to being a jerk. I needed to know that she wouldn’t give up on him. There were many emotions felt through out the entire story. If an author can make me feel many emotions then it was a great story!
Shay Gable hated my guts, and I hated hers, too.
We went out of our way to avoid one another at all times. When she came my direction, I went the other. When we locked eyes, she’d turn and walk away.
All of that changed the day I was presented with a challenge. It started out as a stupid bet: make Shay fall in love with me before I fell in love with her first.
That was an easy bet for me to win.
I didn’t love, I hardly liked.
Yet slowly the game started to shift. Shay made me crave things I never knew I wanted.
The closer we grew, the more she challenged my darkness, and the parts I kept locked away.
The game between us became too real, our feelings intermixed, and the risks of hurting one another grew higher.
But you know what they say…
All’s fair in the game of love and war—especially the heartbreaks.
The next book that I read was an ARC- Southern Storm by Natasha Madison
4 out of 5 stars
This is the third book in the series and I enjoyed it just like I did the other two. Now the other two, I just couldn’t put down. Southern Storm didn’t give me as much as emotion as the other two did. I felt like there could have been more suspense or more of the rawness that was displayed in the first two.
The story line was great and I was waiting for Savannah and Beau’s story since the beginning. I wanted someone to fight and protect Savannah. And I am so happy that Beau finally did. I just love that never ending love!
Buried secrets never stay hidden in the South.
I’m the one who broke up the golden couple. The woman people still whisper about, point at, and give dirty looks to.
Did I sleep with the prom king? No. Did I sleep with the town’s golden boy on vacation from college? Yes.
Did I believe that he was going to marry me? Wholeheartedly.
Did he? Not even close. He got engaged right in front of me and then his father threw two hundred dollars at me and told me to take the trash out.
So, I raised my son in a town where people love him because they think that his father is the sheriff.
It was going great, everything was working out till my lie got out.
I was getting ready to take over the mayoral office from my father, who was my hero.
Until I heard the secret he hoped would stay buried forever.
My brother has a son, not just any son but a son with the woman who was my best friend.
The woman I secretly have loved from the moment she stood up to me and broke my nose in kindergarten.
I need to protect her and in order to do that, we need to get married.
Too bad her nightmare is my dream come true
Now I am reading.. Breathless by Lex Martin
I am enjoying this book so much! I just started it and tonight when I read before bed, it is just going to get better and better.. hotter and hotter.. steamy and steamier! Stay tuned for the full review soon!
The boy next door has always made her breathless.
Joey… I wouldn’t say I ran away exactly—twenty-two is too old for that. I’d call it self-preservation.
I have one objective: protect my heart from the boy next door who has no clue I’ve loved him my whole life, even with a front row seat to his revolving bedroom door.
My escape plan almost worked. Except I left one thing behind.
Logan Carter hijacked my heart, and now it’s time to get it back. This time for good.
Logan…I wouldn’t say I’ve been lying this whole time—not about everything. Not about how much I miss my best friend, and definitely not about how pissed I am that she left with hardly a goodbye.
She’s the last person I ever expected to ghost me, and her absence left a gaping hole in my chest.
When Joey Grayson steps off that bus, I know I’ll do anything to keep her home, and that means finding out the truth. But I’m not sure how to tell her my truths when I’m living so many lies.
What are you reading?
If you aren’t reading, what are you doing during this quarantine? Pick up any new hobbies?
I always wanted to learn how to sew! But not sure I have the patience for it.
I hope you have a great week and Pittsburgh… we are finally getting warmer weather! WOO HOO!!
